Hell Gate

Posted by admin | Posted on 05-15-2009

Hell Gate
(Statute Mile 602, Georgia ICW)

The Problem: Hell Gate was dredged during the summer of 2009, and for a time all was well. HOWEVER, reports starting in May, 2009 and running through the fall of 2013, indicate that shoaling has reappeared here, particularly along the edges of the channel. One reports places depths near marker #87 as little as 4 1/2 feet, but most report MLW soundings of around 5 feet. Undoubtedly, without dredging, things will continue to deteriorate as time progresses!

The Solution: Time your passage through Hell Gate for mid to high tide
